Down off the coast of Cuba… something goes very wrong. The problem with the Caribbean is much like sudden-forest-syndrome on land, there's sudden reef syndrome on the water. The Princess of the Seas, a 400 meter cruise ship owned by Vivindi-Disney Media and flagged to Antigua has holed itself on a reef and is sinking. What makes this particularly interesting, is the current contract dispute between the CAS Coast Guard and V-D Media means there's an actual lapse in coverage. The Caribbean league is mobilizing, but it's just not set up for the evacuation of 5000 people from a cruise ship 200 miles from the nearest inhabited island and 400 miles from the nearest serviceable air strip.
